take up the challenge

I had the time to do a few challenges this week. Here’s my tile for the It’s a String Thing challenge.


patterns: bales and fescue
materials: 3.5″ square tile, black micron, and pencil

I combined the Diva challenge and Joey’s challenge.


patterns: poll, beadlines, footlites, and ipso
materials: 3.5″ square tile, black micron, and pencil

And I’m still moving along with my tangle*a*day calendar.


patterns: dl sunray, jaybarz, botie, khirkee, coaster, capell, and bundles
materials: tangle*a*day calendar, black micron, and pencil

puppy love

My son and his family just got a new puppy. She’s probably an anatollian shepherd/husky mix (mommy was a fence jumper). She has blue eyes and is dearly loved by my three-year-old grandson.

More stripes with a dog bone pattern in honor of the new puppy.


patterns: jalousie, dalmations dogbone, finery, and prestwood

and bob’s your uncle

This just seems to be a season for seeing wildlife. The other day my sweetie and I were driving into town and we saw a bobcat. The moment we slowed the car, he hunkered down hoping we’d lose sight of him.

Joey’s weekly challenge is a ribbon with some pokeleaf.


patterns: pokeleaf, pokeroot, and heartvine
materials: 3.5″ square tile, black micron, and pencil

And here’s the March 16-18 calendar page. Still playing with stripes of patterns.


patterns: nulink, ticking, diva dance, and tipz

potatoes

That’s what my son calls infants. They are potatoes, but you have to treat them nicely because eventually they turn into people.

I mentioned earlier that my daughter-in-law is due to give birth to a potato in September and my daughter is due in August. Two new grandbabies!  🙂  That will make five potatoes grandchildren to love on and spoil.

Here’s my tile for the diva’s latest challenge and the tangle*a*day calendar page for March 13-15 (more stripes).


pattern: verve
materials: 3.5″ square tile, black micron, and pencil


patterns: jessicup, jaws, ona I, and cee-a-mosa
materials: tangle*a*day calendar, black micron, and pencil

iron sharpens iron

Time for another “older folks doing cool stuff” story.

Sister Madonna Buder (the iron nun) has completed 45 Ironman events, has run in over 325 triathlons worldwide, and holds several records. She started training at 48 and is still running at 87.

OK, so I’m going to stop whining about my gentle exercise class now.

Here’s my page for March 10-12. Still tangling at 60.   🙂


patterns: jib, split pea, fayda, braidle, and piza
